A winning streak will be on the line for the San Francisco Giants on Sunday when they battle the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

Jeff Samardzija will be the starting pitcher for the Giants on this day. Right hander Samardzija is 3-9 this season with a 4.63 ERA.

The Pirates will counter Samardzija with Trevor Williams. Right hander Williams has a 4.82 ERA to go along with a 3-3 record this season.

Samardzija snapped a three-start winless streak by holding the Colorado Rockies to two runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings on Monday. The Notre Dame product did not walk a batter in that start and has yielded a total of 13 free passes in 105 innings while striking out 117. Samardzija started twice against Pittsburgh last season and did not factor in the decision in either outing while allowing a total of nine runs in nine frames.

Williams was held out of the decision in each of his last four turns but is coming off a start against Tampa Bay on Tuesday in which he scattered two runs and six hits across seven innings. The 25-year-old matched a season high with seven strikeouts against the Rays. Williams is making his first career start against San Francisco and is 0-1 with a 4.79 ERA at home in 2017.

Oddsmakers currently have the Giants listed as 128-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

The San Francisco Giants happen to play in a division with the three best teams in the National League, so digging itself out of a big hole from the first half of the season remains a long shot. Still, the surging Giants are beginning to look like a contender again and have a chance to earn their sixth straight win when they visit the Pittsburgh Pirates in the finale of a three-game series on Sunday.

San Francisco (32-51) spent most of the first three months toiling at the bottom of the NL West but is starting to win some close games and got 5 1/3 scoreless innings from the bullpen on Saturday in a 2-1, 11-inning triumph. Right-hander Sam Dyson is settling in and earned his first save with the Giants on Saturday while recording his seventh scoreless appearance in his last eight outings. The Pirates would like to get back into the race as well but are struggling to sustain any momentum and are losers of nine of their last 16. Pittsburgh will try to avoid the sweep behind Trevor Williams, who opposes San Francisco veteran Jeff Samardzija.

The Pirates were a 2-1 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Giants. That made winners of bettors who got San Francisco at 107 on the moneyline, while the total score (3) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Last time out for San Francisco, they were a 2-1 winner as they battled the Pirates on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Giants at 107 were rewarded, while the 3 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
